80 talented young performers will bring the tale of Disney's animated film The Little Mermaid to life in a glamorous stage production that children of all ages will enjoy. Coming to Parkville's Union House Theatre during the school holidays, the musical stage adaptation will run for a strictly limited season from Wednesday 30th September to Saturday 3rd October.

Set in a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home and her fins behind to explore the world above. But first she will have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she's the girl whose enchanting voice he has been seeking.
